Dish supercharges its DVR with new apps and accessories

Dorky product names? Check. Features that will make broadcasters antsy? Check. Dish (S DISH) announced a number of updates to its Hopper DVR at CES in Las Vegas Monday, including a new extender called Super Joey that makes it possible to record up to eight shows at the same time on the DVR’s 2TB hard drive and mobile apps that offer the ability to transfer recorded files onto your iOS or Android device. Dish is also extending the Hopper with new apps for Playstation (S SNE) 3 and 4 as well as LG TVs, essentially offering multi-room DVR functionality without the need for additional boxes. It’s all not revolutionary, but should still keep Hopper users happy.
